book editor.  Really he is. 

He's really not this serious all of the time!

My good friend and very talented architect - Matthew Roche won yesterday's Iron Architect competition at TechEd 2007 in Orlando.  I think I am going to get a shirt that says, "I survived the Iron Architect", hm...maybe not. 

Congratulations on a well-deserved victory!

Oh, and, by the way, Matthew's agreed to appear as a guest on my new webcast series - geekSpeak.  So, if you'd like ask him 'how he did it' - just tune in to the MSDN webcast on Wednesday, July 25th at noon PST - the link to register will be posted on the geekSpeak blog next week -
